On October 1, 1988, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 created theNational Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
     The VICP was established to maintain an accessible and efficient way for individuals found to be injured by certain vaccines to be compensated.
     The VICP is “no-fault” and provides compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines.
     The U. S. Court of Federal Claims decides who will be paid. Three Federal government offices have a role in the VICP:
• the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS);
• the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ); and
• the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (the Court).

The Vaccine Injury Table (Table) makes it easier for some people to get compensation.

• The Table lists and explains injuries/conditions that are presumed to be caused by vaccines.
• It also lists time periods in which the first symptom of these injuries/conditions must occur after receiving the vaccine.
• If the first symptom of these injuries/conditions occurs within the listed time periods, it is presumed that the vaccine was the cause of the injury or condition unless another cause is found. For example, if you received the tetanus vaccines and had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) within 4 hours after receiving the vaccine, then it is presumed that the tetanus vaccine caused the injury if no other cause is found.

If your injury/condition is not on the Table or if your injury/condition did not occur within the time period on the Table, you must prove that the vaccine caused the injury/condition. Such proof must be based on medical records or opinion, which may include expert witness testimony.
